trail and responded. to sandy. all over america, people were thrilled to see him working with the republican governor of new jersey. andthe mayor of new york city who is an independent endorsed president obama. [applause] and the democratic governors of new york and connecticut, to turn the electricity on and clean the debris. what i want to tell you is, cooperation works better when there is no disaster. if he did not have cooperation, disaster. barack obama is a curve and coal operator. -- barack obama is a proven cooperators. [cheers and applause] he even offered in an attempt to get a budget deal, at $1 trillion in spending cuts. they said, thank you very much. no deal. we will not see one penny raised on the wealthiest americans even if it will get rid of $4 trillion in debt. the door is still open. when you re-elect him, they will walk through that door.
